About the talk:
How can we bridge the divides that threaten to tear apart our world? In this timely book talk, Dr. Shapiro examines the five fundamental emotional forces that are fracturing politics, community relations, and international cooperation. He presents a new method for counteracting these dynamics and promoting reconciliation in these turbulent times. The talk draws on his newest book, Negotiating the Nonnegotiable, which Ambassador Jaime de Bourbon de Parme called “one of the most important books of our modern era.”
